Have you ever sat down to think that we might fall off the planet someday because the world’s ecosystem is no longer balanced? Well, to be frank even if a coconut falls on our heads, we still wouldn’t have had it come across our minds.
Today, we live in a very busy world where people are racing against the clock to attend to their personal needs most of their lives. Heck, even some fail to do so on a daily basis. Hey, that’s cool guys. We’re all humans here! So, what seems to be the issue? Our self-centred lives seem to blind us from the fact that we are ignorant about the world we live in. What was supposed to be a two-way street became one instead.
“What are you talking about?”, some of you may say. Here’s a hint. Nature is calling out for help!
Sometimes we put our environment in danger for the sake of our comfort. How? Well, for a start we consume all the products nature gives for our daily lives like the source of air, food, water, shelter and that’s just the basics. The comforts we have at home also got to come from somewhere right?...Well, that ‘somewhere’ eventually goes back to the root source, nature! If you’re all caught up, this is what it means by the ‘two-way street’ becoming one.
Guys, don’t you agree that it is only fair to say we have human courtesy when we contribute to the needs of others...NATURE included? Let’s live up to that together!
It is possible that we play our part in preserving our natural environment by taking the simplest steps consistently. It could be from the slightest effort of taking out the trash by dividing the waste accordingly to the replanting of plants we use as resources for our daily life comforts.
Sure, there are certain situations that could go beyond our control like natural disasters and climate change. But the reason these uncontrolled happenings occur are not other than the fact of our ignorance to care and maintain the balance of the ecosystem.
Having said all that, let’s look at a few examples from this COVID-19 season to get a glimpse of what it will look like if we continue our commitment to preserve nature’s beauty. Get ready folks! We may come to a realization of what the beauty of nature truly is and what we have made it become.

Guys, this is one of our local tourist attractions and just look at how crystal clear the water is! The Malacca River that was once teh-tarik colour has now shown its true beauty because there was no act of dumping garbage during the MCO. Not only that it is clean, you could also see clearly all the fishes that swim by. “Hello, little fishies”.

Here’s more...some of our wildlife friends came out of hiding! These little wild otters were found at Taman Tasik Putrajaya during the MCO. If you’re someone from the urban city, you would know that it’s literally a miracle to spot any amazing wildlife in your neighbourhood.
Even better, kids would be exposed to more living creatures apart from the usual cats and dogs.
You may have already read it from the headline about how suddenly a colony of endangered green sea turtles’ sort of claimed Independence Day for themselves and they got to peacefully head to their nesting ground to lay eggs. Looks like we’ve got lots of cute green sea turtles to welcome in the future!
So guys, if these evidences are not enough to show the wonder and beauty of nature…by all means look for more evidence on the internet! These are just three of the many that are out there. Anyways, we can now have a clearer picture and a solid reason why we should take up our responsibility to do what we should have done a long time ago.
PROTECT AND PRESERVE MOTHER NATURE!
It’s never too late as long as we are still sharing this planet together. Watch this informative video of Hello I Have Issues that can get you started with environmental care.
